Greenfuel Technologies Corporation signed a strategic alliance agreement with IGV

Friday, January 12, 2007

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Greenfuel Technologies Corporation, a leader in the development of algae bioreactor technology for recycling CO2 in flue gases into clean, renewable biofuels, announced that it has signed a strategic alliance agreement with IGV, a private industrial research institute headquartered in Pottsdam, Germany.

IGV is a pioneer in micro-algae research and production with more than 80 commercial technology deployments worldwide. The announcement was made today in Pottsdam at a special signing ceremony attended by several Brandenburg government ministers and other high-ranking German dignitaries of science, industry and politics.

Under the terms of the agreement, GreenFuel and IGV will share proprietary algae bioreactor technology in an effort to accelerate the commercialization of biofuel production from recycled carbon dioxide in power plant flue gas emissions. GreenFuel and IGV will also pursue commercial opportunities together in Europe. Once in commercial production, the GreenFuel Emissions-to-Biofuels™ process will allow power plants to significantly reduce carbon dioxide emissions, generate carbon credits, and produce clean, renewable biofuels.

Algae are unicellular plants and, like all plants, they divide and grow using the process known as photosynthesis. GreenFuel estimates that its Emissions-to-Biofuels™ process can absorb a significant percentage of a power plant’s CO2 emissions during the daytime. Unlike typical agricultural biofuel feedstocks, such as soybeans or corn which have a limited harvest window, algae multiply every hour and can be harvested every day. Algae can also be grown on poor quality land with non-potable water, so they don’t compete for land suitable for food crops. The carbon-enriched algae contain lipid oils and starches that can be converted into biodiesel and ethanol for transportation fuels. The residual protein can be used for animal feed and nutritional supplements. GreenFuel is currently involved in a number of Emissions-to-Biofuels™ pilot projects in the USA, Australia, Europe, and South Africa.

“We are extremely impressed with the knowledge, experience and professionalism of the entire IGV organization,” said Cary Bullock, CEO of GreenFuel Technologies Corporation. “We believe that IGV will be a valuable and strategic partner in our efforts to bring our Emissions-to-Biofuels™ algal bioreactor systems into full-scale commercial production at a number of locations around the world.”

Oilgae – Oil & Biodiesel from Algae
Oilgae Blog Home
Energy Portal @ Oilgae – discusses renewable, alternative energy, peak oil…
NewNergy – What’s New in Energy – Energy inventions, breakthroughs and future discussed
algOS – Biodiesel from Algae Open Source

About Oilgae – Oilgae – Oil & Biodiesel from Algae has a focus on biodiesel production from algae while also discussing alternative energy in general. Algae present an exciting possibility as a feedstock for biodiesel, and when you realise that oil was originally formed from algae – among other related plants – you think “Hey! Why not oil again from algae!”

To facilitate exploration of oil production from algae as well as exploration of other alternative energy avenues, Oilgae provides web links, directory, and related resources for algae-based biofuels / biodiesel along with inputs on new inventions, discoveries & breakthroughs in other alternative energy domains such as solar, wind, nuclear, hydro, geothermal, hydrogen & fuel cells, gravitational, geothemal, human-powered, ocean & wave / tidal energy. We hope Oilgae proves to be useful as a research information & inputs resources, and as a source of news & info for business & trade of algal oil, algal fuels & new alternative energy products – specially with regard to new feedstock / feedstocks, production processes and uses, and market info such as price / prices, data & statistics
